Outfit of the Day- Kitty!

Sponsored Post

Hello lovelies!

I wanted to show you this adorable cat sweatshirt I got from
It's on sale for only $19.90 you can get it here.

The sweatshirt is very light, made out of a cotton. It's available in four colors, black, grey, white and neon green. I actually like the black one the best because is the "it" color for this fall.  The white one is so nice looking too.
It's great for casual days. I put it together with a grey tartan skirt black tights and black flats. My sister said she really liked the outfit saying "it's something I would wear". If  you've following me for a while you know her and frequently disagree in everything.

I really like the sweatshirt. I actually worn it a couple times. Remember if you like it, you can get it at Oasap. They have a thanksgiving sale 30% off the entire site + freeshipping worldwide if you use the code: blackfriday at checkout.

Etude House CC Crem "Silky" Review

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to review this product that has been available for a while. As many of you know BB creams gained popularity for their multifunctional properties. Most of them whiten, provide SPF and have anti-wrinkle properties. All these while providing medium to light coverage. Now they present an upgraded version of these BB creams.

These upgrades are called "CC cream" which stands for correct and care. It promises to do 8 things.
Stress Relief
Sun Protection
Tone up
Smooth Texture

Etude House sells two different formulas of this product. "Silky" which is the one I have, and "Glow". I decided to get "Silky" because even though my skin is on the dry side of the spectrum, I was afraid "Glow" would make my face look oily rather than glowy.  I was a bit disappointed on the size of the tube, it is much smaller than what it appears to be.

Price ♥♥♥♡♡ I actually got this for free because I won top blogger on Gmarket. It cost around $18 on other retailers. A little pricey considering how small the tube is.
Coverage ♥♡♡♡♡ Unless you have almost perfect skin this will not cover major discolorations on your skin.
Packaging ♥♥♥♥♡ I like the packaging. The tube has a pump, so you don't have to fear your product will get contaminated. I also like that you can tell when you will need a new bottle unlike other products (I'm looking at you Skin79).

Before and After application
Overall ♥♥♥♡♡ Not really my cup of tea, but feels nice on the skin and blends easily. I must say this isn't meant to be replaced as foundation, it is more of a skincare type of product. It didn't cover anything on my face, on my undereyes I had to use concealer. I noticed it does make your skin look lighter, but doesn't control oil too well. So my final verdict is that I would not purchase this product again.

Late Halloween

Hello lovelies!

I'm so behind posts. I've been kind of busy at home, and well as you already know, I don't have a computer right now. *cries*

Anyways I will tell you what we did for Halloween. The week before Halloween we went to a rave. I don't listen to EDM, so I have absolutely no idea who played besides dada life who were the headliners. It was a last minute decision to go, so I only had like 2 hours to put something together to the rave.

I didn't want to spend more money on costumes, and I never keep my halloween costumes, I always sell them to buy a new one. So  I resorted to the most unoriginal, uncreative and last resort costume.... the cat. Seriously, it's so easy, just throw in some cat years with a leopard and black outfit.

My boyfriend went as Thor, and a lot of random people just came up to him to have his picture taken with him. He so many pictures with people we don't even remember.

Anyways, for Halloween night we went to a fairly new club in Downtown called "Bassmnt" I dressed up as Marie Antoinette. Le boyfriend as Thor again, there were some kids on the streets yelling at him lol.

A few people asked me how much I spend in my costume. My first reaction was "that's none of your bussiness" I just think it's rude to ask strangers how much their stuff is worth. Like you wouldn't walk up to someone and say "hey how much did you paid for your car?"

Actually I didn't pay much for my costume. I got the costume for $30 on amazon, the wig was another $30 on amazon as well, but it was a good quality wig. It was not itchy or hot at all. I bought new shoes to match the dress which cost me $10 on DSW (they were on clearance and I had a coupon). So you see not much.

Halloween Controversial - The Blackface


I really like Halloween. It's the one night a year I can put on something I wouldn't wear any other day of the year. It's the night I can be whatever I want to be. Either a slutty girl with some form of animal ears, an austronaut, a gypsy of whatever and it's fun. Until, some people ruin it for everyone.

Every year there is always a "controversial" costume. Remember Prince Harry with Nazi uniform or Chris Brrown's terrorist costume? This year who was "controversial" was Julianne Hough who dressed as "crazy eyes" from "Orange is the New Black"
It was not the character, or the costume itself that was "controversial", it was her makeup. Yes the "blackface" Back in the day (I'm talking at least 2 centuries ago) actors would paint their faces black to mock African Americans. So the blackface became offensive and racist.  
back in the day
I agree that mocking a race is completely wrong. But I'm sure Ms. Hough was only putting on a costume and to make the costume more complete she needed that makeup. She wasn't acting like the stereotypical African American. Yet she received so much hate for it.

If you want to make your costume as close to the character you put on a wig, you put on the right makeup, the right shoes, and even the contact lenses. That's the fun in Halloween transforming yourself into something you are not. If putting on the black face makeup is offensive then I assume also wearing an afro wig is racist as well. But apparently it isn't, because nobody makes a big deal out of the wig.

I'm my opinion, I don't think the blackface makeup is offensive. I might be a minority here. Because it's just makeup with a darker pigment on a person with a much lighter skintone. What makes it offensive is if you mock the race while you have that makeup on. People immediately jump to the conclusion this person is mocking the race when in reality they are just something that complements their costume.   

While some costumes are really tasteless and offensive like the girl on with the Boston marathon costume and the guys dressed as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman. Really words can't even describe how stupid those costumes are. These costumes are actually offensive to the family's victims.  No tragedy should be made into a costume.

Not just blackface seems to be offensive. Native Americans think it's offensive to wear native american costumes for halloween. They don't want you to wear their culture just for fun. Yet we don't see much articles from media outlets deeming the costume as offensive. You put on the costume and only the Native American community finds it offensive. 

You can find chinese food take out costumes and geisha costumes and Chinese and Japanese people don't like it. They would find it offensive is you start saying that ching chong kuang nonsense.  Yet again no articles of how racist these costume is.

I'm Mexican, and I don't like you wearing day of the dead makeup. Because you probably don't even know what it means for my culture. I don't like it when you put on the sombrero and zarape and if you pretend to ride a donkey while you are holding a bottle of tequila. Because these are false stereotypes of my culture. Do I find it offensive? Maybe, but I'm tolerant and I'm ok with you wearing it as long as you don't mock my culture and my people.
Mexican stereotype
What my point is, no matter what you dress up as you always seem to piss off someone. You can't simply make everyone happy.  Even Walt Disney would be offended if he saw the Mickeys Mitress Mouse costume. Because Minnie is not a mistress. She is Mickey's girlfriend for God's sake!

But hey it's 2013, by now people should be able to tell apart mockery and racism from a costume. Seriously just move on.
